Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2
Overall Activision could do better.
So ive picked this game up solely for Online Co-Opertive play with my friends but was highly disappointed with my purchase. this game not only felt as if it was rushed. but i can see that the developers of Activision didnt put much detail and care into this game.
Ive played X-men Legends, X-men Legends 2, and Marvel Ultimate Alliance, Which have all been well recieved I've enjoyed all three and the fun experience I've gained from playing them.
But thats ended with Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2
+Great Story and CGI Activision really Improved on the story along the way which is good.
+Free DLC - Is always a plus in my book for any game.
+Special Fusion - was definitely an Amazing add to the game.
+Ingame Menu - was very easy to go through and the Select Button Skill and Medal Distribution was a great add to the game.
+Gambits Ability to make Explosive Objects is quite fun and i hope that there are more characters like him that make the game fun to play.
+Enemy A.I. was great and Challenging.
-Poor Game play
-Screen Freezes at Random while Playing or In menu
-Disappointing Costume Variety and Selections Options
-The Roster of characters is ok but cant help but feel like they took away a good variety of hero's that i liked playing as from the old game.
-Missing Heroic Deeds and Puzzle Solving -
Teleportation - Reaching Closed Area's with Deadpool like in Previous Versions.
Might - Lifting Heavy Objects with Super Strong Characters like Hulk and The Thing the more might they have the easy it is to access specific sections.
Psychic - Making Bridges to get across the Maps and more.
Flight - Reaching a High Up Section of the map that isn't reachable with grounded Allies.
Elemental attributes- Using Iceman to put out fires, Or Human torch to burn holes through Near Indestruble Objects.
And Saving Civilians in any one of these Scenario's through out the game for rewards or Experience.
-Would really be satisfying if the Area and Object were all destructible like in Previous games mainly Where walls could be torn down which was really fun even though pointless.
-Gameplay Graphics need to be tweaked abit so characters dont come out too dark when in the shade.
-Online Co-Op Play
Players Progress was very disappointing to play there's so many things that could have been done right like saving progress done between you and your friends would have been a great step but it only saves progress for you alone or your friends alone which turns into a tug-o-war of who plays who's.
Badges or Medals was very disappointed not only could i not see what medals was being used but i couldnt even use my own medals for the character i was using this could have been improved so that the guest player could use his/her own medals to play the game.
-Characters Dialogue it really wouldnt hurt for special conversations with characters to actually be worded out by those same characters that trigger them.
-Would have really Improved the game a ton if I could have uploaded previous characters from the Original Marvel Ultimate alliances or Unlocked a character just for having or Completing the Previous Marvel Ultimate Alliance game.
-Allies A.I. needs to be Improved something that would be nice to add is A.I. Traits or Motives that allow a player to choose whether these A.I. should be Defensive, Aggressive, Resourceful, Cowardly, and Random.
Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 Great Game !
This game is very good to me i love it so much. me and my little brother use to play this everyday or my friends would come over and play it with me. good graphics, good voice acting, better than the first one, 4 players. this game just have so much to it. they made this game so awesome.alot of cool heros. but theres only one thing that bothers me me about this game ! its $39.99 and this game is very old but still fun. they should drop the price down a little bit it use to be $37.99 PSN:DaRkDLuSiOn
I played Ultimate Alliance 2 for ps2 and it was HORRIBLE! Graphics r like ps1 and the gameplay is very corney, but, the ps3 version is SO MUCH BETTER! Still u cant do less than 4 people in ur team but its still a good game, amazing graphics, very fun gameplay, and same but more elaborate storyline than the ps2 version. This is a relief because many people like me enjoy marvel games like ultimate alliance. It may not be worth $40 but this game is really fun and so much better.
For people with friends and lovers of Marvel.
For marvel fans, there really isn't anything new, the attacks are plain old button mashing and camera can be a little frustrating. But what makes up for that is the awesome and devastating combination attacks. THis game is for people with friends over and have nothing else to do. The story isn't really interesting but it will keep you playing nevertheless
Very Good Game
Marvel UA2 is an excellent game. The campaign is very long and has many surprising turns. Their so many things to unlock and make your characters stronger that I have restarted several times. I can play it with my friend because 2 player co-op mode is very good and easy to use. The game has 2 different options for the campaign so you can play both sides several times and still get enjoyment plus their are so many characters to choose from. Overall an excellent game.
ture game for super hero fans
MUA 2 is a game that different from any other game i have for my ps3. i love marvel and D.C. but marvel beats D.C no doubt. Hero clicks, video games, comics, movies. marvel wins every time.... however this game could be a lot better. more characters would have been awesome, and i wish the choices you made in conversations had more of an impact on the story.
spider man, iron man, gambit, Luke cage = PERFECT TEAM
highly recommenced it for the price it stands for right now.
this game dropped the ball. It stepped up graphics, sound, and gameplay but fell short WITH EVERYTHING ELSE the characters in the first one were great with really cool ones to unlock but in 2 you have to unlock thor who wants to play as thor?
its good for story not online or dlc
the story is good but what i have when i sign into psn and play marvel ultimate alliance 2 the screen goes green and i downloaded the dlc and the game didn't detect the dlc so i would say beat the game and return it the download and online glichtes is a waste of time and space on ps3
Marvel's #1, #2 Superhero Game. No small Feat.
First off I'm not a radical fan. I realize this is a confrontational belief, but it is well founded. First off #1 superhero video game( this is non confrontational choice and my belief) is Batman Arkham City( it beat out Asylum in everyone's opinion and that was the Best at its time). I furthermore say that being DC's #1 ain't no feat.
Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2, I have to say, had it hard... Their are some awesome MARVEL GAMES, Spider-Man 2, Marvel Ultimate Alliance( I know right?), Spider-Man Shattered Dimensions( isn't as great as said), Ultimate Spider-Man, X-Men Legends 1& 2, X-Men Origins: Wolverine... The list goes on... and I love them all.
This game perfects a already much loved formula, with great story and 26 equally great characters. Marvel Ultimate Alliance had 8 great characters but their were 28( 20 not so great characters). Their is importance in everything you do even conversations. This bests them all for 3 reasons, #1 it does Iron Man, Captain America and every person justice making it the perfect introduction to every character #2 you don't have to be a VIDEO GAME MASTER. But can also work with, THE HARDCORE. Works for both. #3 STORY the story is indepth and fun for all. Marvel's King... behold in wonder.
#2 Superhero Video Game should be obvious. If this is king of Marvel it beats most of the competition, Batman Arkham City is #1 so... and I refuse Arkham Asylum 2nd( call it bias but I can't give #1 to batman then #2 because they're similar). This is the obvious choice.
GET THIS: other superhero Games to consider other than this below.
So i just bought a ps3, and one of the first games i had to have was MU2 im a huge Marvel fan and im quit satisfied with this game. i beat the bejesus out of the first one and im destroying this one. There's deffinitley a few characters compared to the first one but in exchange this game has a more substantial story plot based off the marvel civil war saga. Loadings a bother but the graphics are greatly enhanced with ten times more attention to detail, lots of collectibles for you collectors but the upgrading of you're character miss's a personal touch everyone preety much levels up at the same time so you cant make one character super crazy, the sounds average the gameplay is fluid and simple and the graphics like i said great. my BIGGEST complaint about this game is the fact that when you download the bonus characters off the psn they only appear when you play online, and no one is ever playing online so i can never use amazing characters such as black panther and carnage to name a few. biggest fail -_-. b ut all in all i deff recomend this game for everybody and i demand marvel fans to purchase it.
